A strong Switzerland needs
a strong relationship with Europe

Switzerland is located in the middle of Europe. It is closely linked to Europe in geopolitical, economic, value and cultural terms and relies on a solid network of relationships to remain a prosperous nation. Europe is at war again: Especially in challenging times like now, the Europa Forum addresses current and future decision-makers from business, science, civil society and politics who care about the future viability of an open Switzerland in a strong Europe. For them, the Forum represents the outstanding platform for reflecting with selected personalities on a
relevant annual theme
from a European perspective, to develop answers and to derive implications for themselves, for Switzerland and for Europe.


Let Europe arise

The new annual theme for 2022, “Let Europe arise,” focuses on the next generation taking over in challenging times on the Old Continent. In this context, the Europa Forum addresses, among other things, the question of how Europe – not only the EU – and its understanding of freedom, the rule of law, democracy and human rights will continue to develop. Millennials have a special role to play here: globally, they are in numbers the largest generation of all time, worldly, networked, realistic and pragmatic. Who are these Millennials who will soon determine the fate of the Old Continent in politics and business? And: What kind of Europe do Millennials want now?

Annual Meeting 2021

Last year’s annual theme, “Switzerland and Europe under the spell of China”, struck a chord. Because the exchange with leaders in Switzerland and Europe showed one thing above all: The uncertainty in connection with the emerging China is great, and so is the need for exchange, classification and recipes.
